Urbana's mural game has been strong over the last several months, and the newest one by Rafael Blanco is stunning. Blanco recently completed a mural on the Urbana Adult Education Center, before moving on to the Smile Student Living property at 804 Illinois Street. You may have seen photos making the rounds on social media, but it's worth driving by to see the vibrant colors up close and personal.
